History & Heritage

Since opening in 1954, Arden Hills continues on a journey of its own to personify the very definition of wellness.

Founded by the late innovator Sherm Chavoor, Arden Hills began as a small, private club focused primarily on the development of world-class swim and tennis programs. With a proud and impressive history of inspiring multiple Olympic medals by athletes who trained at Arden Hills, the breathtakingly beautiful Resort continues to focus on swimming and tennis, but has expanded and evolved into an innovative wellness resort focused on nourishing the body and mind through healthy nutrition, top-notch fitness programs, indulgent relaxation amenities and much more.

After an ownership change in 1985, Arden Hills embarked on a major redevelopment effort designed to dramatically expand the scope of its facilities and offerings. In 1998, the Resort unveiled a spectacular new Olympic-sized swimming pool, fulfilling a design originally envisioned by Coach Chavoor.

In addition to our focus on fitness, Arden Hills has earned a reputation for offering a spectacular venue for weddings and events, indulgent and award-winning spa and salon services, upscale overnight accommodations and a multitude of innovative wellness programs.

At Arden Hills, all is well.
